Miami Art Museum Back On Track

A private museum in Miami proposed by the Florida art collector and hedge fund manager Bruce Berkowitz is back on track after stalled negotiations with the city had threatened to derail the project. Berkowitz told the Miami Herald back in July that “there are no ongoing discussions” with the city, and all “work has been suspended.” Local officials had rejected past proposals and had stopped communicating with him about the latest one, even after he had bought additional land and offered redesigns to meet code and zoning regulations. Since then, however, the executive seems to have come to a quiet agreement with officials. The building is slated to showcase two monumental works in Berkowitz’s collection: Richard Serra’s 218ft winding steel sculpture Passage of Time (2014), previously shown in Qatar, and James Turrell’s light installation Aten Reign (2013)
